HAILUN CITY: Citizens of Hailun city, northeast China’s province of Heilongjiang, woke up to a magnificent view when three suns shone down from the sky. The view lasted for about fifteen minutes.

Stunned by the natural miracle that had occurred, people started to capture the view through videos and photos that sparked a huge debate on the social media.

The illusion occurs when sunlight passes through ice crystals in air at just a right angle. It is called parhelia or sundogs.
